    Default A4000+ Kms long motorcycle journey across Pakistan



    "FROM SILVER SANDS AND WARM BEACHES TO SNOW CAPED MOUNTAINS,HIGH PASSES AND GLACIERS"









    (A 4000+ kms
    ,
    29 days long journey across Pakistan on a Suzuki GS 150 motorcycle)






















    Wealth i seek not;







    Love nor a friend to trust;






    All i seek is the heaven above and road below me.







    These are verses from a poem, but i am not sure if i have got them right, still if someone ever asked me what did i want from life? Most probably the above lines would be my answer. Nothing gives me more pleasure than hitting the road with a thought of long journey ahead, add the freedom of motorcycle riding to it and the picture completes, almost perfect. With the same spirit i left home on 1st of this month from Karachi. I will post the details alongwith the pictures day wise, from day 1 to day 28. For the details of my preparations for the trip see the short ride report i have already posted. For the first 2100 kms i rode solo, then was joined by other members of
    PAKISTAN BIKERS CLUB
    in Islamabad for rest of the trip.
    I work only because it pays for three F's. Food for me, Fuel for my bike and Film for my camera.

    Masha Allah. Zabardast. I am enjoying your adventure. Thanks for sharing.
    I have learnt that I can always pray for someone when I don't have the strength to help him in some other way. Let's pray for the Mankind, Muslim Nation and our country Pakistan.

    DAY 23, JULY 23, 2009.






    Karimabad To Rama (Cant remember the distance)







    Richard's rental bike was having some trouble so he canceled his plan to ride with us to Deosai for some other time. Dr Khan was to ride with us till Gilgit from where he was to load his bike on truck and take the flight to Islamabad next day (its another story that things didnt go according to plan and he ended up riding all the way back to Islamabad). Me and Tahir were to continue our ride to Deosai.

    Here I want to mention the courage and determination Tahir (Elexir83) showed through out the trip. It was his first long trip and despite having reservations he came all the way and faced all the hurdles without complaining. Thumbs up for Tahir

    DAY 24, JULY 24, 2009.






    Rama to Sheosar Lake Deosai and back to Nanga Parbat View Point KKH (No Idea of Distance covered)







    We spent the night at PTDC hotel, only choice available, and woke up early because wanted to visit Rama lake before we left for Deosai. We covered some distance on motorcycle and after that it was all walking. At that point Tahir gave up and told me to go ahead as he thought he wouldnt be able to walk. So I went to the lake alone.

    The following pics are just to give u an idea of the beauty of the place. My compact camera couldnt capture what I saw, no matter how hard I tried. True beauty of the place in full bloom can only be appreciated by visiting personaly.
